The Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industries are accepted by all as having high hazard processes and this requires excellent leadership that would lead to the right safety behaviours.  Safety Leadership starts in the Boardroom but undoubtedly applies to all levels, and all disciplines in the organisation. The role of safety leadership importantly includes setting the safety and health standards, ensuring the systems are in place for deploying standards and appropriate safety behaviour for all.

In this critical, high hazard process industry the health and safety professional will need to be able to manage and lead people both during normal operations and during times of crisis management. This training course provides you with ‘state of the art’ leadership, teamwork and management techniques to ensure proper control of your work environment. Behavioural management techniques will show you how to pro-actively influence others; effectively identify and manage risks and hazards; as well as build a culture for improved safety using key behavioural safety leadership methods.
